Happy Birthday Jean! (And 100 Days of Kindness, Day 23)

Since this is my blog and I make the rules I’m going to write about someone else’s kindness today.

So, with Thanksgiving fabulously making this a short week for us worker bee’s, today was a bit stressful at work.

Scratch that – let’s start with this: I love my job. I really do. I’m so happy I took it. I truly feel like I give it 150% every single day. I’m proud of the work that I do and the career that I’m building. All that being said, of course there is stress at work – any job is going to provide you with stress at some point. I just would like to make it known that I’m not complaining about my job, I’m just writing honestly about life and how things work.

Anyway, today was stressful for a million different reasons. There is a lot to get done before we all shut down for various Thanksgiving plans tomorrow. In the midst of all my stress, my co-worker gave me a smile and a Snickers bar. A FULL SIZE SNICKERS! Not even a mini. She had it for herself but gave it to me because she thought I could use it. After a little bit of protesting “No, no that’s for you, I can’t take that!” {secretly thinking, mmmm yes, GET IN MA’ BELLY} I graciously accepted the delicious Snickers bar and chowed down.

Such a simple thing seriously made me happy and turned my day around. I love when that happens.

For my kindness today, I’d like to wish the fabulous Jean a very, very, very happy birthday today!!! I hope you’re having an excellent day and I hope you enjoyed my hilariously funny Monk-e-mail. :)
